Today, I installed “Kubuntu 6.10” in our Laptop. It is a live CD with installer. It takes some time to install because of its liveCDness.
Good. After 45 minutes, it installed well. It has Nice GUI impressive.
After installation, it boots fastly. It has thousands of packages in its repository.
With a neat internet connection, kununtu can be configured as a perfect setup for any kind of useage. From Desktop to server, from multimedia station to development center…
I want to use it as a great Desktop Kit. I needed to play DVD, DVD to Xvid convertion, DVD Burning, Audio Editing, Video Editing, Office Applications, Internet Browsing etc.
So, I added the following entries in the file “/etc/apt/source.list”
deb http://de.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu edgy main restricted universe multiverse
deb http://de.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu edgy-updates main restricted universe multiverse
deb http://de.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu edgy-backports main restricted universe multiverse
deb http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu edgy-security main restricted universe multiverse
Then "#apt-get update"
In Synaptic, I searched for DVD,Divx,Xvid,etc. And installed needed applications.
Transcode,Mplayer,Drip,DVD::rip, acidrip, dvd-slideshow, ksubtitle,dvdauthor etc.
And now, My Laptop is a perfect Multimedia Station.
